    I was wondering, since my ti-6's tension is only 16-20lbs
    what would happen if i strung it higher than 20?anything bad or will it just be tigher?
    Also if im to string it as such do i request it to the person stringing it?

    I recomend 22-23 lbs any higher and the strings will break a lot, yes you request the tension you want. I find that to be the "cleanest" tension when hitting the bird. lower and you get that "thud" sound, you know, the sound of hitting it with a chunk of wood.
